Through Many Fires -- A Bestseller
Through Many Fires is the first book of the Strengthen What Remains series. The novel soared to #10 on the Amazon Kindle science fiction post-apocalyptic list in August of 2013 and remained on it for the rest of the year.
In Through Many Fires, Terrorists smuggle a nuclear bomb into Washington D.C. and detonate it during the State of the Union Address. Army veteran and congressional staffer Caden Westmore is in nearby Bethesda and watches as a mushroom cloud grows over the capital. The next day, as he drives away from the still burning city, he learns that another city has been destroyed and then another. America is under siege. Panic ensues and society starts to unravel.

Because of the enthusiastic response to Through Many Fires I immediately started on the planned second book in the series, A Time to Endure. That novel will be released next year.
A Time to Endure – Moving Forward
The cover design for A Time to Endure has been approved and released.
Because of the enthusiastic response to Through Many Fires I immediately started writing the planned second book in the series. Titled, A Time to Endure, this next book is now my number one writing project. Click here to see a progress bar graph of the writing.
While I’m still busy with the manuscript, the graphic designer, Micah Hansen, has delivered the final cover design. The first book in the series, Through Many Fires, was done in shades of red and we decided to go with that theme for the second book. The stark background is not one particular scene in the book but suggests a tone of coming events.
A Time to Endure, book two in the Strengthen What Remains series, will be available on Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Google Play, and the iTunes Bookstore, in paperback, on Kindle, and Nook and most other ereader formats when released later this year.
